myOptions® Encourage™ College and Career Planning Program

Join Our Family of Education Partners

myOptions Encourage is a college and career planning program that partners with student-, educator- and community-based organizations. myOptions Encourage supports educators and helps students plan for life after high school. Together with our partners, we serve over 1 million students each year.

Participating in the myOptions Encourage College and Career Planning Program provides your organization with the tools, advice, and resources you need to structure the big conversations around college. You’ll also get access to interactive college and career reports that reveal your students’ post-secondary plans and key trends. Most importantly, you’ll be able to support your students and their families with free future-planning tools in the Encourage app.

How the Program Benefits Students

We believe all students—regardless of background, income or zip code—should have access to free and robust college and career planning tools. After students complete a college and career preference form, they are invited to access Encourage, our free college and career planning app—available online, on iOS, or Android. After activating their accounts, students immediately see their personalized college matches and scholarship opportunities, as well as tools for setting goals, and exploring careers and college majors.

How the Program Benefits Your Organization

Participation in the myOptions Encourage program is free to your students and members. As a partner organization, you can customize questions on the college and career preference form for students and educators in your network. myOptions Encourage will add your results to an interactive dashboard with comparative local, state and national data.

We deploy college and career preference forms in the Spring and Fall

Educational Organization partners use Encourage data for:

  • Program evaluation and feedback
  • Advocacy and policy initiatives
  • Internal communications and strategy planning (including professional development)
  • Fundraising and report writing
  • Membership drives
  • Monitoring student interests
  • Key planning milestones
